"On October's Urbana First Fridays we're celebrating local fashion and badass women. We're talking civic leaders, school teachers, artists, entrepreneurs, hard-working mamas, and more.
Join us for an outdoor fashion show on Main Street from 5:30-6:30 with a reception afterwards in the Cohen Building (136 W Main St). Get to know the women who inspire our town and the designers, stylists, & clothing purveyors that make these women shine.
Library staff will be at the game to promote library services. Go Tigers!
